PETALING JAYA: PJ Utara parliamentary seat (P106) incumbent Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun has denied smearing the reputation of opposition candidate Tony Pua (DAP).

“I did not mention any names in my speech so why should he (Tony) feel slighted?” Chew said at a press conference.

Barisan's Chew had allegedly labelled Pua a "self-claimed economist" and that his decision to sell his Singapore-listed IT company was that of a "bubble economist" during a campaign speech in Kampung Chempaka recently.

In response, Pua had written a statement demanding an apology from Chew, saying the allegations were defamatory and inaccurate.

“I deserve the right to pursue legal action for what she has said. She should apologise,” he said. “We will wait for her response.”
